The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), played between the champions of the AFC and NFC conferences. It is the culmination of a 17-week regular season and a three-round playoff tournament, and it is played on the first Sunday in February. The game is held at a different location each year, and it is attended by thousands of fans, as well as a global audience of millions watching on television. With its high-stakes, high-energy gameplay, and star-studded halftime shows, the Super Bowl is a cultural phenomenon that has become a national holiday in the United States.
Not college basketball, but the remaining four NFL teams heading to their national championships.
Representatives of each of these teams – the Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs – will inspect the Super Bowl gyms and hotels, and review plans for the big week. They will do everything except visit SoFi Stadium, home of the Rams and Charger, where Super Bowl LVI will be played in Feb. 13.
The tour – a short drive for the Rams – is a regular NFL practice during Super Bowl week, with teams left crossing their fingers and having the courage to dream.
So the 49ers Rams in the NFC tournament game, with the Bengals in the Chiefs in the AFC.
With that in mind, here’s a look at the possible combinations of the Super Bowl:
These teams last played in 2018 at the Coliseum, and the game was a long time ago, the Rams won, 54-51. It was the highest scoring match in the history of “Monday Night Football,” and for the first time in NFL history the team scored at least 50 points and lost. The match was scheduled for Mexico City but was moved to Los Angeles at the last minute due to poor stadium conditions at the Estadio Azteca.
Rams quarterback Jared Goff, now in the Detroit Lions, threw for 413 yards, while Patrick Mahomes of Kansas City threw for career-high 478. There were six leading changes, four of them in the fourth quarter.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid grew up in L.A. and studied at Marshall High. Although he had never coached the Rams, he wore a 12-year-old Rams uniform to the punt, passing and kicking kicks during a Monday night game break in 1973. He successfully joked over his competition, as well as a video of that. infected.
For 21 years, the Rams and Chiefs lived on different sides of Missouri, until the Rams returned to Southern California in 2016. Austin Blythe, a Chiefs supporter, played for the Rams.
One might call this matchup a “Modern Family”, as actor Ty Burrell – Phil Dunphy in the long-running ABC comedy – is a devout Rams fan, and actor Eric Stonestreet, who starred in the program Cameron Tucker, he likes the Chiefs.
Los Angeles Rams vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Zac Taylor, the Bengals coach, was the Rams’ receiver coach in 2017 and the quarterbacks coach in 2018. At 38, Taylor is one of the youngest coaches in the league, yet he is over two years older than the Rams’ Sean McVay, who at the age of 30 was the youngest NFL coach of the modern era.
The Rams left Andrew Whitworth who played for years at Cincinnati, and confirmed Taylor when the Bengals wanted to hire him.
Both quarterbacks, Matthew Stafford and Joe Burrow, were No.
Before moving to LA in 1946, the Rams spent ten years like the Cleveland Rams. So both franchises started in Ohio.
The Rams and Bengals have played only 14 times, with Cincinnati holding an 8-6 advantage. They last broke out in 2019 by winning the Rams, 24-10. That match was in London, and Rams receiver Cooper Kupp had seven 220-yard touchdowns and a touchdown.
This will be a repeat of Super Bowl LIV, the last game before the COVID-19 epidemic, when Kansas City want to win 31-20. It was the first Super Bowl among the teams with their red uniform.
Reid has coached the San Francisco offensive line – San Francisco State, i.e..
The 49 and the Chiefs have met 14 times in their history, with each team winning seven.
San Francisco 49ers vs. Cincinnati Bengals
The matchup will mark the third time the franchises have met in the Super Bowl, with 49 winners in the 1981 (26-21) and 1988 (20-16) seasons.
The late Bill Walsh, a famous 49ers coach, was an assistant Bengals coach from 1968-75. The DeBartolo and York families, who have owned 49ers since the late 1970s, are based in Youngstown, Ohio.
Nick Bosa, a 49ers star defender lineman, played for Ohio State and was a friend of Burrow (who started there before moving to Louisiana State) and Bengals defensive end Sam Hubbard, one of his college teammates.
San Francisco and Cincinnati played alone this season in Week 14, with the 49ers collecting a 26-23 victory along the way. The Bengals overcame a 20-6 deficit in the fourth quarter to force extra time, with rookie receiver Ja’Marr Chase hitting two touchdowns on the comeback.
